'Community' star teases new season

Donald Glover has revealed details of the forthcoming second season of NBC comedy Community.

The actor told New York Magazine that he hoped to improve on the first season of the show.

He said: "All I can tell you is that it's going to be good because we're actively trying to beat the paintball episode, because that was so great and all you can expect is us pushing ourselves further."

He added that the series would continue to play on pop culture elements in the new episodes.

"The show is kind of a mirror for pop culture, especially for the characters. So I feel like everything that happened over the summer will probably be played with. So everything we did, whether it's a Scream 4 reference or a Spider-Man reference, I think that'll be in the show," he said.

Glover also denied that he was disappointed not to land the role of Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man film reboot. The comedian launched an online campaign to win the part, but eventually lost out to British actor Andrew Garfield.

"I think [Garfield] fits the role really well and I'm really excited," he insisted. "I was very flattered by everybody being behind me and everybody supporting me. That was really cool, but I never really wanted to force anybody's hands or anything like that."

Community will return to NBC on September 23.
